Having been an active band since 2003 and taking worldwide stages by storm after their Massacre Records debut 'Barbed Wire Metal' in 2011, Melbourne's ELM STREET return with their 2nd full-length album and this time their music packs a METAL punch.

'Knock 'Em Out...With A Metal Fist' is out now via Firestarter Distribution and features years of hard work  and dedication that has shaped the band into a leading force in the heavy metal genre.

Years have passed and the years have seen ELM STREET tour Europe on multiple occasions, along with visits to the USA & Australia show with legendary bands like Iced Earth, Sepultura, Coroner, Accept, Tankard & Hammerfall.


These real life experiences, along with many others, have painted a strong sound which ELM STREET now showcases in their new album. Australian & European fans received a glimpse of the new album when the band took their 'Heart Racer EP' on the road during 2015.

This excitement was felt by many and led to ELM STREET renewing their album deal with Massacre

Records and focusing on the release of 'Knock 'Em Out...With A Metal Fist'  

The new album again features production by Ermin Hamidovic from Systematic Productions (who already worked with the band on 'Barbed Wire Metal') and features an iconic artwork by Ken Kelly, who has only worked with a handful of bands such as KISS & Manowar.  

Words are only words, but if Heavy Metal is your genre of choice OR you're in need of some energetic music then 'Knock 'Em Out...With A Metal Fist' will be spinning on your record player for years to come!
